Temple … DEAD!

Disturbing news out of Lansing tonight, as an e-mail announcement sounds the belly-upping of The Temple Club. No official word on what happened, other than incredibly vague murmurings of "financial problems."

This sucks. I've never been much of a fan of The Temple Club — way too echo-y in The Grand Room — but it has been essential to my last three-plus years in East Lansing. Hell, the first time I ever went there was to see a triple-header of The Hard Lessons, The Sights and The Dirtbombs.

What is to become of Lansing now? Can Mac's shoulder the burden for the entire city? Will they start booking good shows again some time soon? How long can The Litter Box stay open? Are there any horse socks?

For being such an uneven venue, this sure has knocked the wind out of my sails

R.I.P. Temple Club. Somebody pour out a can of PBR for our fallen homey.

i've only been to the temple club once to see animal collective last fall. although i was a bit turned off by the heavy security, there's no arguing that it's a beautiful place to see music. tis a shame.
